FAC career question

Good day, all.

Me and my friend were ROKAF officers, my friend was a FAC, and I was an air munition officer. We worked together at 36th TACG.

We are hoping to find some jobs with our career, but it is very hard to find this in Korea, so I want to ask you about the jobs regarding JTAC missions or JTAC training.

Any answers would be appreciated. Thank you.

Jobs with the ROKAF as JTACs, or jobs as a civilian JTAC? The US military provides JTAC training to US military only. They will provide JTAC training to foreign nations after some strict coordination.

Unfortunately there are none in the US. There's no ability/legal means for civilians to control air strikes (meaning civilians NOT aligned/assigned with the US Government), and I am not aware of any plans to permit it.

Thank a lot for answer SATCOM. But we know we can't work in US because of the security problems. So we think about other countries like the Middle East. Anyway, thank you for helping us. Have a good day.

SATCOM - I think Rallypoint has a few guys working as JTAC/SUAS Trainers/Evaluators/Program managers that are "Certified" JTACs who maintain their currency...

At least that's what I was told.

You are correct Hotmike, almost all of them worked for me at one time or another, but the above question was from former ROKAF types, not former USAF TACP/CCT/JTAC etc.

Then Adashi probably needs to be looking to "the East"... Way East, as in Middle East.

The Saudis have a full up "AGOS", but I'm not sure who's running it these days. <ick>\
